3rd nor'easter in 2 weeks to hit East Coast

Outages were due primarily to snow laden tree branches that broke and took down power lines. The winds will not be as strong and the snow will not be as heavy/wet, but we're still watching some wetter snow the further east you go in CT.

More than a foot of snow is expected in parts of CT, where Gov. Dannel P. Malloy is urging people to "take it slow and remember their winter weather driving skills".

The road into Logan International Airport is empty as Winter Storm Skylar bears down.

This will make for three winter storms in two weeks. The rest of New England was under a winter storm warning, and a winter weather advisory blanketed most of NY and portions of New Jersey, Pennsylvania, West Virginia and North Carolina. A renewed surge of cold air will then become entrenched over the eastern USA behind the storm, leading to unseasonably cold temperatures for March to continue through the middle of the week, with Florida also feeling the effects of the colder weather.

Boston is one of the cities likely to bear the brunt of the storm.

Elsewhere, communities east of Worcester County should see anywhere between 12-18 inches, while western MA and the Berkshires will likely see less than a foot. It dumped from 2 to 4 inches of snow across southern IL and Kentucky, including as much as 11 inches in the Lexington metropolitan area. "We may not know for sure until the storm is already underway", DePrest said. "It seems like this one is going to be a big one".

Snow is expected to begin late on Monday night and continue into Tuesday making the morning rush hour commute hard.

New England is bracing for the brunt of the snowfall and wind gusts that could be hurricane force.

Blizzard conditions are possible and power outages are a threat for parts of Rhode Island, eastern Massachusetts, New Hampshire and ME, which are under the Winter Storm Watch from Monday evening to Tuesday afternoon, he said.

At 3:30 p.m. the Shelter Island School announced: "At this time, we are calling a two hour Delayed Opening for tomorrow, Tuesday, March 13".

The National Weather Service said parts of MA could get up to 18 inches of snow and issued a coastal flood warning.

South Jersey, especially near Philadelphia, is predicted to remain relatively snow-free, with just an inch or less of accumulation.

Tuesday Night - Mostly cloudy, with a low around 29.

Schools in Boston and Providence, Rhode Island, were shut on Tuesday, Maine's state legislature canceled its session, Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy closed all government offices and the Amtrak passenger rail line halted service between Boston and NY. Gov. Gina Raimondo urged residents to stay off the roads and let the plows and work crews do their jobs.
